Big single lights are more cafe racer than streetfighter (the 80s streetfighter classic was a pair of small lights). You might have to make up your own brackets, which isn’t too difficult.
Fly High with the Speed
This is one bike that really needs no introduction. Since a long time it has been catching the fancies of street riders and track racers alike. Yet the new YZF R6 has got such a stunning make over that it has become all the more drool worthy for all the sports bike lovers out there.
Looks and Design
The YZF R6 looks like one of those science fiction machines from the future that take your breath away the minute you see them. It gives you a feel of sharp lines flying in the air turning into a marvelous sports bike. It not only looks good but is also extremely comfortable to ride on. Front and rear disk brakes and a sturdy chassis give a smooth suspension and precise ride. The bike is designed to give an equal weight distribution and easy ride.
The YZF R6 is a powerful sports bike with a four cylinder, DOHC liquid cooling fuel injected engine with a high displacement. It guns down the tracks and catches on speed with amazing swiftness. A six speed gear box and multi plate slipper clutch provide for excellent transmission.
The YZF R6 by Yamaha is a light weight sports bike with great power. The forks and even the disc brakes are light and aid in providing the precision it is known for. It is a fine blend of a stylish street ride or a fierce track race.
The R6 has almost attained a cult status amongst its fans and is really an awesome, awesome bike to ride. However it is not a bike to be handled by novice riders and is clearly meant for more seasoned ones. The looks of the latest 2013 version are even more razor sharp and stunning. The bike only leaves you wishing for at least one or yet another ride soon after the first one!
I have looked for a couple days now for some answers, but to no avail. I need to know because for some reason I am finding quite a few of the 1000rj’s for like $ 4,000 on cycletrader. I am just wondering what the difference between these are.. Just weird considering the the R6 for the same year is like 2k more?

In approx 1999 the R1 replaced the YZF100RJ as the top of the range sports bike, being lighter faster more focused etc. The R6 (600cc) is the little brother to the R1, same concept, just less cc’s.
Thing is not everyone wanted an R1 because the Yzf1000RJ (Thunderace in UK) was/is a very capable bike for most people, especially pillion pasengers. Its a bit heavier, with more room, not as flighty as an R1. so it wasn’t dropped from the range until 2003 in the UK. I don’t know when it was dropped in the states. The motor is similar in that its 4 cylinder 20 valves etc but the gearbox is arranged so the lump is shorter.
Anyway don’t under estimate a YZF1000RJ, some say its a better more practical bike for the road, theres plenty enough of everything to get you into trouble. but if you have to have the latest thing the R1 is for you.
